Wow it’s been almost three months since I wrote about my first day as a working mom. Time sure flies. As you can imagine, I have been busy. But thankfully life has settled into somewhat of a routine since that first hectic day. Unfortunately that routine has not left much time for blogging. Which made me sad. I’ve missed my little blog!

At first I didn’t have much to blog about. Working and taking care of Jack did not leave much time for cooking or other projects around the house. Or let me rephrase that, I didn’t have the energy for cooking or projects! We subsisted on a lot of frozen prepared meals (thanks Trader Joes) and went to bed early.

As I’ve gotten settled into my new life (and Jack has started sleeping a little better) I’ve started cooking more often. But after cooking, eating and cleaning the kitchen I was always ready to hit the sack, not post a blog. So what to do about this little blog?

I enjoy blogging. It’s something I’d like to continue doing. After I started work I considered starting up a new blog all about being a working mom since that’s kind of how I define myself now. I thought I would have a lot more to say on that topic. But I’m not ready to give up this blog and I doubt I could maintain both blogs at the same time. Strangely my blog traffic has actually increased during my little sabbatical. It seems I have a website called Pinterest to thank. I haven’t been on it yet but I hear it’s a major time suck. 🙂

So here I am, trying to figure out how to make time for blogging without sacrificing time with my family. Because let’s face it, if I have to choose between blogging and hanging out with this guy:

I’ll choose him every time!

I think where I’ve settled is that I will continue to post about food and other homemade stuff on this blog. But posts will probably be a lot shorter and with less pictures. Sometimes a post might just be a picture with a link to a recipe and a few comments on changes I made and how it turned out.

I might throw in a few posts about being a working mom too. That’s who I am after all!

  1. Glad to see you back and blogging (even in a reduced capacity!). I’ll be looking at your archives soon for what you did to prepare for little Jack… as we’re doing the same now. Congrats on mastering the working mom juggle, you most definitely are a rock star!!

    1. Love the new last name Alisha 🙂

      The best things we did (I’m not sure if I posted about them) was to cook a bunch of meals in advance and then also stock up on stuff like toilet paper, paper towels, pet food, toothpaste, etc. We bought a month or two of that stuff ahead of time that way we wouldn’t run out and have to worry about getting to the store for awhile.
